THE RETURN

Take my lukewarm heart O Lord
And fan the dying flames,
Let your Spirit once again
My selfish spirit claim.

I’ve stayed away from You too long,
I yearn now to return,
To feel again the love that I,
So recklessly did spurn.

I’ve spent my days indulging
In selfishness and strife,
I now confess I’ve been a mess,
Without You in my life.

I’ve fallen often yet Your love,
For me has never dimmed,
You do not keep a count of all
The ways in which I’ve sinned.

You hold me like the Prodigal
I lean against your breast,
What bliss I’ve known since I came home
And found in you my rest.
